As we enter the Fourth Quarter of 2012, we find ourselves running hard to the finish line. We have added some great new clients, including ActiveVideo Networks, SportRx, and Maxon Lift, while continuing to work on new projects for our existing clients. Continued demand for outstanding talent still abounds, despite the uncertainty of the upcoming elections and the world economy. It is being proven again that the best way to handle and take advantage of changing circumstances is to have a committed, intelligent, and nimble team in place.

Client Snapshot – Ekso Bionics

Ekso Bionics Users

One of our first clients remains one of our favorites, not only because they create mind-boggling “Iron Man” products for the military, but because they have an outstanding team that is enabling people to overcome their physical limitations and to walk upright. Ekso Bionics started seven years ago at UC Berkeley to develop an exoskeleton that would enable someone to carry great weights across varied terrain. Five years later, the Company unveiled a new product with a vastly different purpose – Ekso, an “intelligent, bionic exoskeleton that actually allows wheelchair users to stand and walk.

We are honored to be working with companies like Ekso Bionics, which is working so hard to improve the lives of people.
